    Volks and bolt pattern question

    heyy im newby here. i blew the motor in my type s rsx. i just purchased a 2005 sti. i heard i the 05 sti bolt patterns were 5x114.3. The stock wheels say 17x8. Im wanting to get my wheels shipped from home in NC (im in phx) but im unsure if the wheels will fit. the wheels are Volk Racing LE37T 18x7.5 5x114. If someone could help that would b great. I dont wana ship the wheels here if they wont fit. thanks

    Contact your local authorized Volk dealer and supply them the offset (you do not list this in your post) as well as the diameter and width and model of the wheel. Ask specifically if these wheels as stated will clear Brembo brakes on your 05 STi as this is crucial.

    Again keep in mind that the offset alone does not guarantee a selected wheel will fit your car since your brakes present a specific requirement. See here:
